This review was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Pampers. I was provided the featured product free of charge to facilitate my review, but all opinions are 100% mine.
My baby, Ella, is 1.5 years old and has never slept through the night. Even though I know it isn’t a reflection on my parenting, I still feel a little embarrassed to admit this. We have tried countless “sleep training” methods with limited success. I suppose she just isn’t ready for this long-awaited milestone quite yet.
Of course, its not like she hasn’t made any progress since her newborn days. She has finally gotten to the point where she only wakes up once or twice a night. This is a huge improvement, and has made everyone’s lives a lot more enjoyable. Unfortunately, with Daylight Savings Time quickly approaching, I am worried about how she will cope and if this will lead to even less sleep (precious, precious sleep).
Tips for Surviving Daylight Savings
I know that Ella will sleep through the night eventually, but in the meantime, I do my best to make sure she is as comfortable and as relaxed as possible every night. Setting the thermostat appropriately, sprinkling a few pacifiers in her crib (she is always losing them at night!), and making sure her feet are covered are all on the bedtime checklist. There is one tip, however, that is most important for a comfortable sleep- a dry diaper. Let me tell you, when Ella’s diaper leaks, EVERYBODY hears about it! Since she was born, I’ve used Pampers at night. Unlike other diapers that offer two layers, Pampers uses three absorbent layers to provide up to 12 hours of overnight dryness protection. When you have a baby with sleep problems, the last thing you want to deal with is a leaky diaper.
